Maple Morning

Maple Morning

Sunshine makes everyone happy, especially when it’s accompanied by a breakfast of French Toast, bacon from the butcher’s, and Canadian maple syrup.

I love how this recipe incorporates maple syrup right into the egg dipping mixture—why didn’t I think of thatIMG_20160216_122151

Sometimes we add a sprinkle of cinnamon, sometimes we don’t. Either way, it’s delicious. But do opt for the cream instead of milk—it makes the dip thicker and adhere to the bread better.

  • 2/3 cup whole milk, heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 slices French bread
  • 2 tbsp butter

1. Whisk milk and/or cream, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and salt together in a shallow bowl.

2. Heat butter in skillet over medium heat. One or two slices at a time, dip bread in egg mixture. Bread should be soaked through but not soggy. Cook french toast in batches – don’t overcrowd it. It needs 2-3 minutes per side – it should be golden brown and firm in the centre.

3. Keep hot in a warm oven until ready to serve.
